On my visit to the Lost Gardens of Heligan in Cornwall, I happened upon this little toolshed and, although delighted, I had no tripod with me, but there was just sufficient light from the window on the right. I haven't changed the colours. I wish I had got all of the blowtorch in the shot. A bit of rust appearing in places. V2 is a closer take of the tools on the bench.
V1: 1/6sec @ f3.1, ISO100, 8mmFL, AP.
V2: 1/10sec @ f3.2, ISO100, 6mmFL, AP.

The light makes this - beautifully lit, and nice detail.

A splendid find with some excellent tones Pamela- the natural light draws the eye over to the right hand side of the picture where there are some interesting shapes and tools. The very dark bottom left by contrast is quite difficult to work out, and as such I find myself going back to that rather too often, so I wonder if a little lightening there would help

What a lucky girl you are Pamela to discover a ''treasure trove'' like this.I have been telling my wife for years that diamonds are NOT a girls best friend !! Far better with all the goodies here !! Not only rust,but some very nice ''antique'' tools too !!
Excellent shots.

I agree, did well without a tripod.

Fantastic shot, just goes to show you don't need to carry a trailer full of tripod's, lenses etc. This very detailed shot proves the point. Well done.

Thankyou for your interesting comments.
HELEN & GLYNNIS: I have done a V3 with the bottom left corner lightened a bit. The bench shaded this area, but I quite liked the graduation from dark to light. However, having done the adjustment, I think you are probably right.

I like what you have done in v3 Pamela. Obviously as you mouse over, the eye is initially drawn to that corner as there are changes there. Having spent a while however with v3, I do find that the eye can rest more easily with the light and the detail it exposes.
Certainly worth the effort of another version in my opinion.

An interesting array of tools in this nicely lit shed, you did well in the low light to get so much detail Pamela, a nice pair of images and the slight amendment to v1 is good and gives more even toning

With the extremes of light these are particularly well photographed and your composition they make excellent images. I have tried for that yesteryear effect with a mod.

I prefer V2 Pamela - lovely textures in the collection of tools.
I have been looking at the V3 addition. I don't think you have quite lifted the light in that corner enough.
I have taken it a little further in a mod - I think the extra light projects the tool bench better but still leaves some shadow.

So amazing that these are handheld at that shutter speed, Pamela. The image is so fine and smooth all over! Especially in V2.

Utterly utterly exquisite light...gosh...and I find that the dark bottom left corner sits perfectly well as is. 'Cos that's the way the light has played into and across the room. It's like the ends of some tools which are in shadow - they are so 'cos that's the way the light is.
